Movie Poster Spotlight :: Look! Up in the Sky! Is it a Bird? Is it a Plane? No! It's a Super Serial! Sam Katzman's Superman (1948)
It's Superman vs. the Spider Lady in this rip-snorting serial from Columbia Pictures courtesy of Sam Katzman, Spencer Bennet and Thomas Carr. And despite the somewhat crude animation to make the Man of Steel fly, Superman was one of the best serials ever made.
